Publisher's Summary

In this book, Blades and Fondas offer business professionals an indispensable handbook for transforming the way we work and breaking free from the old, inflexible, 40-hour workweek. The authors show creative ways for individuals to fit work requirements with life obligations, and persuade managers to adopt these custom-fit work strategies to improve their bottom lines. Listeners will finish the book convinced of the place of custom-fit work arrangements in today's workplace - and of how honoring employees lives outside of work is an effective and innovative strategy for both managers and organizations.

Featuring compelling stories of companies like Jet Blue, Ernst & Young, and Best Buy, the book profiles strategies that are gaining traction in workplaces across the country. Included are details about:

  • New twists on traditional flexible hours and part-time work strategies
  • Virtual workplaces
  • Resuts-Only Work Environments (ROWEs)
  • "Babies at Work" programs

Practical and engaging, The Custom-Fit Workplace provides individuals and employers the tools they need to be successful and happy, both at work and in life.
